Abstract

We report on the observation of amplified reflection and optical parametric oscillation via degenerate four-wave mixing in a nonresonant medium. The process is mediated through the third-order nonlinear susceptibility in a transparent liquid medium, CS2. A collinear mixing geometry is utilized to obtain long interaction lengths and polarization discrimination is used to separate the pump and signal fields.
